“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part II obtuvo 11 nominaciones al Oscar. Ganó 6 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Robert De Niro; Best Director: Coppola, Best Writing, Screenplay Adapted from Other Material: Coppola & Mario Puzo, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration: Tavoularis, Graham & Nelson, y Best Music, Original Dramatic Score: Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

John Cazale (Fredo), al igual que en The Godfather (1972), tampoco fue nominado por su brillante e inolvidable actuación.

De Niro no estuvo presente en los Oscar.

Lo mejor: Robert De Niro, John Cazale, Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth), la cinematografía (Gordon Willis, llamado “The Prince of Darkness”) y la música (Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

Lo peor: los muertos que se mueven (el hermano de Vito Andolini que mueve el brazo y la prostituta que respira), aunque tampoco importa demasiado.

“I know it was you, Fredo. You broke my heart. You broke my heart” (Michael Corleone / Al Pacino)

The Godfather. Part II got 11 Oscar nominations, and won 6 Oscars (Best Picture, Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Robert De Niro; Best Director: Coppola, Best Writing, Screenplay Adapted from Other Material: Coppola & Mario Puzo, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration: Tavoularis, Graham & Nelson, and Best Music, Original Dramatic Score: Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

John Cazale (Fredo), as in The Godfather (1972), didn’t get a nomination for his brilliant and unforgettable performance.

De Niro didn’t attend the Oscars.

The best: Robert De Niro, John Cazale, Lee Strasberg (Hyman Roth), the cinematography (Gordon Willis, called “The Prince of Darkness”), and the music (Nino Rota & Carmine Coppola).

The worst: the dead that seem alive (Vito’s brother moves his arm and the dead prostitute is breathing), although it does not bother too much.
